Dunlin and Sanderlings - Maer Rocks - 8/5
I've seen virtually nothing this week. This afternoon off Mudbank, just before high tide - 3 Pale-bellied Brent Goose, 4 Dunlin, 2 Whimbrel, 4 Great Crested Grebe and 35+ Sandwich Tern.
A brief 30 minute look off Maer rocks revealed a further 10+ Sandwich Tern, 3 Common Tern, 9 Manx Shearwater and a Great Crested Grebe.
On Tuesday there were 7 Sanderlings and a Dunlin on Maer Rocks, and on Monday a Red Kite was watched from the back of our house, thanks to a 'heads-up' from Terry.
